It’s time to manage and monitor your network more efficiently.
It’s time to join the cloud revolution. Choose cloud-managed networking. 

Cloud adoption levels have dramatically accelerated in the last two years. As of today, 92% of SMEs and large enterprises rely, at least partly, on cloud-based applications for many critical services. The 2020 IDG Cloud Computing Survey predicts that this number will grow even further reaching 95% in the next 18 months. With cloud technology finally establishing its permanent primacy in the IT environment, cloud-managed networking is also becoming the new normal. Here’s why.

Why cloud-managed networking?

Cloud-managed networking refers to the ability to manage your network infrastructure remotely through a web based application. By eliminating the need to purchase, configure and maintain on-premise controllers and appliances, companies can save money and time which allows them to focus on their core business instead. Find out below why cloud-managed networking is critical for your business’ success, and how Plasma Cloud can help you reach your goals.

Work from anywhere, at any time

The covid-19 pandemic has forced a large part of the world population to be at home. Working remotely has become more and more common. Cloud-managed networking with Plasma Cloud is the perfect home office solution since it allows anyone to remotely manage and monitor networks from anywhere, at any time. You can easily perform configuration changes and troubleshooting from a personal laptop, or even from a tablet or mobile phone. There is no need to spend countless hours travelling from one location to another, cutting both costs and response times.

Flexibility at its best

Cloud-based networking is ideal for growing businesses, as it enables you to easily scale up your network within minutes. Scaling down is just as simple, as everything is managed under a single pane of glass. Whether you want to bring the Internet to a single school, a dwelling complex or a huge hotel chain – choose cloud-managed networking with Plasma Cloud as the way to go.

Automatic updates and bug fixes

Software updates are conveniently installed “over-the-air” allowing new features and bug fixes to be deployed automatically across all your networks. By doing this, the vendor takes care of the general maintenance of your hardware, future-proofing your investment and allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business – a recipe for success.

Ease of setup and management

Cloud-managed networking equipment is designed to be a “plug & play” solution. This hardware works seamlessly without the need to manually adjust any parameter beforehand. Naturally, more advanced users can still manually configure and manage their devices to cater to very specific scenarios. Anyone can easily perform the needed managing, monitoring and troubleshooting through an easy to use graphical interface. Your vendor capable hands will then take care of the underlying system complexity.

Security

In today’s digitally connected world mobile devices (e.g., laptops, smartphones, tablets, smart watches, etc.) are everywhere and allow attacks from inside and outside your network to constantly expose your network equipment. New vulnerabilities in software and network protocols are being discovered and exploited on an ongoing basis. The only way to protect your infrastructure without risking disruptions to your business is choosing a trusted cloud-managed networking vendor promptly delivering the latest security updates.

Trusted team and future-proof hardware

Plasma Cloud’s core team is staffed by former Open Mesh engineers. Some of them worked with Open Mesh since the very early days, but decided to leave the company during the time of the Datto acquisition. Over the last year, the common effort and desire of this team allowed many disappointed Open Mesh customers to future-proof their initial hardware investment.

Plasma Cloud gives continuity to the original Open Mesh mission: providing lifetime free cloud-managed networking. It is compatible with most Open Mesh hardware, which can easily be migrated to the Plasma Cloud console. If you are a former Open Mesh customer, you will be happy to know you do not have to pay the cloud licensing fees introduced by Datto. Stick to the original business model you got used to and migrate to Plasma Cloud.
